    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Mateo, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shutterfly (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    A quick chat with the recruiter, then a 1 hour with a manager. Said they'll schedule me for the tech portion of the interview, but a week later sent a "sorry, you're not a "fit"". Had high hopes for this company, but it looks like a place where talent goes to die. Oh well...

    Interview Questions

    • I asked how fast could they move, the manager said even scheduling for interviews was above his pay grade.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Interviewer comes with laptop, searches questions. Bad attitude. Not professional. I could feel interviewer was showing his power and ego. HR had no clue about the interview schedule.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shutterfly.

    Interview

    Boring phone screen, then got standard rejection email. Seemed like a bunch of C or D players. Can you imagine in 2017 they still won't import anything other than jpg? FAQ on their site advises to go first use for an image converter. Incompetence abounds.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic questions, tell me about yourself, talk about what's on your resume, can you do X, how about Y?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shutterfly (Shakopee, MN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and 3 weeks later a phone interview was setup and a week after that a 2 hour in person interview. When I arrived for the interview I was told my schedule had changed. Met with 6 different individuals all were great except the two from HR. It was as if they had never interviewed anyone in their life. No planned questions trying to think of them with long "umm" and pauses. Honestly I was trying to not laugh.

    • Management asked good behavioral questions. HR asked questions like "how do you stay organized"   Answer Question

    Interview

    Firstly they will send a Online Access, two programming questions. Should be finished within 90mins. I think you need to bug free to pass it.

    Creative Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Shutterfly (Santa Clara, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    First was contacted by a recruiter via email to set up a phone interview. I had a phone interview with the recruiter, then with the hiring manager. After that, I interviewed on-site with three different Shutterfly employees. This was all in the span of two weeks, and after my in person interview I was told that they would give a final decision in the next 2-3 business days. Then was told that I would be getting an update "next week" for the next 6 weeks. The recruiter did a good job of staying in contact with me, but I would have preferred to just have been told that the process would take so long, rather than being told every week that I would have the final decision next week.
